Happy St. Patrick’s Week!Cap'n Brendan
The Irishman in me loves St. Patrick’s Day, and the opportunities it presents to drink Jameson, enjoy beer, and most importantly, hit the pub with good friends. But there’s another side of me… Let’s call it the human side… That hasn’t been out to a bar on March 17 in nearly a decade. To quote The Italian Job, “I had a bad experience.” It’s amateur night, a date which couples with New Year’s Eve to bring every idiot out to the bars convinced that they can hang, and it’s everyone else who can’t hold their liquor.
Again, I was that guy in my early 20’s. I had that bad experience. It was a feeling of invincibility that came crashing down after a night out on the heels of a Saturday spent drinking and fantasy baseball drafting all afternoon. It did not end well. I’m a bigger fan in my 30’s of nights that do end well. And yet I’ve let myself get talked into going out tomorrow after work, because legendary nights rarely happen at home on the couch. And more than a liver that isn’t trying to choke me to death on Saturday morning, more than heights, my biggest fear is missing out on a legendary night. Here’s just hoping I figure out a way to celebrate that without getting so drunk I miss it anyway.
Whatever you’re up to tomorrow night, I hope you have a great St. Patrick’s Day. And that if you don’t remember it on Saturday morning, that you at least have friends who were along for the ride to fill in the missing pieces. It’s the Irish way!
Congratulations to last night’s winners: Bobby’s Best Buddies (1st), 4x4 Eyes (2nd), and It’s Been a Long Wednesday (Second-to-Last). Have wonderful weeks, and I’ll see you all next Wednesday!

This is the bio that never ends
Yes it goes on and on my friends
Some people started reading it, not knowing who I was
And they'll just keep on reading it forever just because
This is the bio that never ends...
